It’s hardly difficult to find a gift for someone who wants or needs something in the beauty department. Brands truly roll out the holiday red carpet, repackaging old faves and introducing new bundles in the form of Advent calendars, ornaments and even products that are so prettily packaged, they don’t require fancy wrapping paper or a gift bag.
The problem here—at least if you’re someone who thrives on finding hidden gems that everybody else doesn’t have—is you risk buying something that may or may not already be on someone else’s list. In this case, twice isn’t so nice and it’ll be too late to exchange what you bought. In cases like these, there’s only one place we know won’t let us down: Etsy.
Though searching for just one gift in the digital marketplace has the potential to take a very long time, the gift set section is straightforward and arranged by topic, so you don’t get lost in the sauce. What we love most about the beauty section in particular is that it suits two very specific types of people: the special ones you know will appreciate something that’s one of a kind and that random coworker whose name you picked for the secret Santa exchange.
Gift sets somehow check both of those boxes and for that, we are thankful. Though it would be practically impossible to list each and every Etsy gift set here, we’ve got a sampling of standout options for you to consider.
